Parenting class to be offered
The Middle Peninsula-Northern Neck Community Services Board Prevention Services Division is pleased to announce the 15-week educational series of the “Nurturing Parenting Program for Parents and Their Children Ages 5-11 Years.” The classes will be held in Northumberland County beginning September 15 and ending December 22.
The program is designed to increase family communication, cooperation, closeness and respect. Parents and children—meeting separately and together—learn to handle feelings, communicate needs, understand each other better, take charge of their own behaviors and emotions, feel good about themselves, enjoy each other and have fun. Practical, effective techniques are taught for handling challenging behavior. Parents and children learn positive communication skills.
The class takes place in a supportive and nurturing atmosphere, it is open to the public, and is free of charge. The program will be held on Tuesday evenings at Northumberland Elementary School, 757 Academic Lane, Heathsville, from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Dinner will be provided each night during the 15-week course.
